1. Targeted Participation Program information
The Targeted Participation Program (TPP) provides funding that enables organisations to promote participation, healthy lifestyles, and active engagement of Western Australian communities in sport and active recreation, with a focus on evidenced based low participation groups.
In 2021/22, funding for TPP is being provided as a joint initiative between the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and Healthway.
The department and Healthway are seeking applications for co-designed projects that create quality, affordable sport, and active recreation opportunities with a focus on engaging low participation groups.
Projects are required to increase participation in physical activity and ensure participation pathways into community sport or active recreation either by:
- piloting an innovative targeted concept; or
- expanding an evidence-based program.
It is critical that submitted applications demonstrate evidence of collaboration between eligible organisations. Projects will also need to ensure they create healthy environments to support ongoing participation in physical activity.
There are two categories available:
Category one — funding from $50,001 to $150,000
This is an annual competitive funding round for co-designed project(s) between eligible organisations to submit for funding based on a strategic alignment between their activities and Targeted Participation Program outcomes. The projects will consist of a lead applicant and be supported by partner organisation(s).
Category two — funding up to $50,000
This is an annual competitive funding round for co-designed projects that create sustainable, affordable, and quality sport and active recreation opportunities and provide a pathway to engage targeted populations. The projects will consist of a lead applicant and be supported by partner organisation(s).
